against the tide
Yesterday while reading a topic about queen rearing I ran into Kirk Webster site with articles and some videos from some finish guy that had visited him. It's amazing to see people who think so clear, so naturally.
It's my opinion too that we should simplify our lives to the maximum and live close to land where we were born from and were we'll go in the end.
After reading some of the articles I am sure that this varroua thing could be dealt in a different manner. I will try to follow the same path.
You have my respect and love guys for what you do.
... so far I've only used OAV in the autumn. I'll keep an eye on the counts and probaly this year I will not treat as I will be making nucs from 7 hives.
